This problem tries to determine "reaction coefficients for the catalytic cracking of gas oil into gas and other byproducts." (Cite and problem taken from the COPS library)

## Mathematical formulation

The problem is given by

**Failed to parse (unknown function "\norm"): \begin{array}{llcl} \displaystyle \min_{\theta} &\sum\limits_{j=1}^{21} \norm{y(\tau_j; \theta) - z_j}^2 \\[1.5ex] \mbox{s.t.} & \dot{y}_1 & = & -(\theta_1 + \theta_3) y_1^2, \\ & \dot{y}_2 & = & \theta_1 y_1^2 - \theta_2 y_2. \\ \end{array} **

## Parameters

The values are measurements for the concentration for at time points .
